Honpa Hongwanji Mission has a great historical background of over 110 years in Hawaii, looking toward establishing a deeper understanding of Pure Land Buddhism while working together for social issues as a related purpose of religious groups.


The Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii was initiated by Shinran Shonin (1173 - 1263), founder of Jodo Shin school on Pure Land Buddhism. Shinran Shonin was born in 1173, during the Kamakura Period in Japan. His teaching is based in the Pure Land tradition as a successor to Honen Shonin. Shinran Shonin, he developed his efforts to clarifying the necessary of being carried on the power of the Primal Vow as the inner dynamics of recitative nembutsu. The complete entrusting of self to the Primal Vow meant simultaneously abandoning all need to rely on self-power. This is reason for Shinrans stress on Shinjin (Faith), "the true and real mind of Amida Buddha," which is the source of this entrusting. Through the working of Amidas wisdom and compassion, we are made to say the nembutsu, affirming the enduring power of Amida and acknowledging our limited human capacities. Thus the central question for the Shin Buddhist become, not "How can I attain satori?" but "How can I be carried by the power of the Primal Vow?"

The Honzan (The World Headquarters) is called the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha as exactly name of denomination, and be called the "Hongwanji" as official name of a temple where located at Hanayacho-sagaru Shichijo Horikawa, in Kyoto, Japan. The Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha, usually referred to as the Nishi Hongwanji.

There are four large overseas Missions in the World which are Buddhist church of Canada, Buddhist Church of America (North America), South America and Hawaii. In Hawaii, it is called Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. There also are temples in Europe, Australia, Mexico, Taiwan and Kenya.
